Guys;
I am trudging along with my 1/32nd waterline PT 308. I really need either a close up photo or diagram of Port and Starboard locker hatches/doors. located inside P and S after cockpit structure, aft of .50 cal gun turrets. Also I need either a close up photo or diagram of the forward ammo/gear locker which is mounted on the port side of the forward cabin, below windows, what waas stored in this other than maybe a heaving line or two and the cleaning kit for the bow 20mm?
Take care,
TED
P.S. Now we reached messageboard page 100!!!! Congradulations my PT BOATBrethren!!!!

Thanks Al;
Do you have anything on the forward ammo/gear locker which is mounted on the port side of the forward cabin, below windows on the forecasle? It sort of looked like a bench seat.
Take care,
TED

What series boat is the drawing above? Do you have this in a full scale drawing?

While this is for the aft box, I suspect the basic structure was similar to the box on the charthouse, less the feet.

The inboard profile is for PT265-313.


Here's some more detail for turret construction:



Both drawings are from microfilm I loaned to Dick for inclusion on the CDs he made up. There are about 100 frames of Higgins drawings on the CD, so it's well worth having.
